    yields8 to 10 servings timePrep: 15 min; Cook: 15 min; Bake: 10 min difficultymoderate

    Delicious anytime, this makes an especially nice holiday appetizer because of the reds and greens. You can make the onion topping up to 24 hours ahead of time, refrigerate and reheat before spooning over the Brie.

    1 medium onion, cut into fourths and thinly sliced
    1/2 cup dried cranberries

    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    Vegetable oil
    1 round (15 ounces) Brie cheese
    1/4 cup coarsely chopped pistachio nuts, slivered almonds or walnuts
    Crackers, if desired


    1. Heat oven to 350°.
    2. Melt butter in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook onion in butter 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in cranberries, brown sugar and vinegar. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is thickened and caramelized.
    3. Lightly brush ovenproof plate with oil. Place cheese on center of plate. Bake uncovered 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is soft and partially melted.
    4. Spoon onion topping over cheese. Sprinkle with nuts. Serve with crackers.
